The arrival of My Aged Care is a major change to the aged care sector, with clients, not-for-profit organisations and commercial providers still finding their way around the new system.
By September 2017, in keeping with the changes in our sector, South Eastern Community Connect will be adding Home Care Packages to its services.
Through your Home Care Package the Government pays for the services you need to live independently at home. The choice of services is yours so you can get all the support you need and only the support you need in a way that suits your personal situation.
With this high level of choice and flexibility comes complexity, which can at first be confusing for you. We can talk your options through with you to help you find the best support and help you understand the process of applying for the funding.
When you are ready and know whether you are eligible, what you would like to access and what you need for the application, you will need to call My Aged Care and for an assessment. The Aged Care Assessment Team/Service (ACAT/S) will help you and your carer or family determine what kind of care will best meet your needs. You can then ask for a referral to a provider of your choice.
South Eastern Community Connect can already provide package services including;
In the following weeks we will also implement;
Packages come in levels reflecting your care needs, from Level 1 for people with basic care needs to Level 4 for people with high level care needs.
All packages give you to access the same quality and services, but with each level the number of support hours increases.
There are also supplements for people with dementia and for veterans with an accepted mental health condition are available with any of the four levels of Home Care Packages. Your care provider will apply for the subsidies and ensure you meet the eligibility criteria.
